4:00 am
commissioner fewer: i am very pleased with this deal. i think this is great considering all of the students we are going to be sending your way. it is great that students will be in a facility that was once owned by us. i am going to ask our deputy superintendent about our marketing broker. it is the largest real-estate company in the world. considering we are a nonprofit, nothing against it personally, i just think that we should maybe work with a non-profit that the as this type of work. if not, i was wondering, if we do not have our own the facility
4:01 am
person, which we do not, perhaps the city does. we could contract out for the city to represent us. that is just a suggestion. i think that we are small potatoes compared to all of the real estate in the world. i think that it is more socially conscious not to -- to investigate further about having a partnership of this nature with a nonprofit. that the public can also benefit from a sale like this. commissioner mendoza: i have been waiting for this moment to say and thank you to san francisco and david for his work around this. several of us were here when we got that bidding going on when we tried to sell the property
4:02 am
several years ago. that was really fun to have the secret bidding going on. it was 20 pot -- plus million dollars we sold the property for originally. it has come full circle and deserves to go to the university. this is about supporting our kids and making campuses for our students and to have this go to san francisco state, regardless of the pain and agony it has caused, we all have tough budgets. we figure out a way to get to a place where we were comfortable. i just want to acknowledge -- it is going to be a nursing school potentially. some other wonderful things. i want to think leroy who has
4:03 am
been gracious in his conversations with us. i think this is a nice way for the president to have this as part of his legacy thank you to our staff for being supportive. this was one of the things that we consistently talked about, whether it was selling it or opening it up for parking or making it a fully market. we had so many crazy things we wanted to do with it in the name of revenue. we are glad to see it go to a deserving institution like san francisco state where we can assure the property. we appreciate you will make it look beautiful. >> i will echo my colleagues. i think there is a sigh of
4:04 am
relief from the students that they will not be moving back. i remember when my daughter was approved to go to the school yard, she decided not to go there for different reasons. i see this is a win-win situation. we will benefit in many ways. in san francisco state university will benefit. we have some cash that will help us with our general fund. and beyond that, our students here, many of which will go to san francisco state, will benefit from having something built their for their use. i am glad. most of us are supportive of

4:20 am
considered legislation since their contract began. he came down with everybody. his whole legislative staff. there were five people here. including their general counsel who also represents other cases. some of that were circumstantial. they happen to be in town for a court hearing. they all stayed. i wanted to communicate to the board how important it is that we actually have a group of people that think our advocacy is important, not only to their company, but to the state. what we do is an example for others. we need to think about what we want to do with legislation. and also, to commend to you that everybody -- did everybody get
4:21 am
the materials? we are talking about the form, since it is a new contract. the reason we have a new contract is that our former contract was with our former advocate who has been, he got a new job. we should be happy about that. i am happy about this since i work with him. we have a new format for looking at our legislation. i would ask you to look at that so you are sure the information you're getting is the information you want. and also we had a discussion about how are advocates, the number of bills they review, and also how they decide which ones we should take a position on, how they work with our staff, how that is reflected in the recommendations they make to
4:22 am
west. and we asked for some recommendations, and one wasn't -- one that would ask which proposals have been reviewed. and what our own staff expertise and legislative advocates. i would ask you to look out the bills. we did not take positions on bills because we were not ready. they are not cooked yet. we will be reviewing those. i will ask you to look at them. then, the last item, we had informational items. one is the next series of reviews of our board policies. this is our work to try to get them on line and also to make them searchable and more accessible to everybody and
4:23 am
hopefully compliant, which has been a problem for us. we have not looked at our policies for decades. if all of you have the series 1000 proposals, we will be going over them in detail as we did with the 900 series. i hope he will give us input on that before our next meeting. we have an issue about, which we have been asked to look at, related to a technical change related to state disability insurance. then, of course, we have an update on the state budget. that goes before the budget committee. the outlook is bleak. we will be keeping you updated on that. that is an interesting issue because it does crossover.
4:24 am
it is the legislative advocate to comment talk to us. they do our budget work. we want you to be aware of that and think about where you want to go to talk about that and learn about it. as well as for the public. i want to thank the deputy superintendent for substituting that night and coming here and acting as liaison. thank you. >> don't forget we have to continue are close to session meeting. >> we are still broke. >> a good summary. a report on city and school

4:28 am
us about that. it is not well-founded. it is uneven but overall it was a positive report and i think it is having the effect of transforming the way we approach student discipline and reducing expulsion. >> a report of closed session actions. approving the expulsion
